11:15am-Noon Breakout Sessions Begin

Welcome to the specialized portion of DoD Electronic Commerce Day. Please read over the detailed schedule and identify the presentations among the eight tracks. We have grouped the presentations by functional business area and related presentations will be conducted in the same meeting room. During the presentations, we hope to portray how that functional business area is embracing EC as part of the reengineered business process to improve warfighter support, trading partner interface, and the DoD business infrastructure. We have coordinated the tracks along one-hour blocks so you are free to pick and choose to attend individual presentations among the different tracks. No advanced signups are required and seating will be first-come first-seated. To help you plan your attendance, we have provided a description of the track groupings, name of the track moderator and synopsis and name of the speaker for each presentation. Many of the one-hour blocks have more than one speaker and some will be exciting discussion oriented panels discussing a similar topic.
